The Global Dairy 500 Conference was kicked off with a welcome from Geoff Frank, Alltech.
He pointed out that this is a “farmers” meeting and the second annual conference. Discussing problems and sharing new ideas is the main purpose of the meeting. So hopefully that is what will be accomplished. He says that he hopes Alltech will play a role in helping farmers overcome the challenges facing the industry. He related a personal anecdote about changes he had to make in his own dairy during a similar time years ago. He says that even with the challenges there are opportunities.
I have started an online photo album for the Conference which you can find here: 2009 Global Dairy 500 Conference
